The Ark's 25th Annual Fall Fundraiser

Description

Please Note:  Proof of Vaccination is required for admission.  By purchasing a ticket you agree that you and your guests will comply with all laws, orders, ordinances, regulations and health and safety guidance adopted by the State of Michigan, the County of Washtenaw and The Ark, including any guidelines in place at the time of the show. Attendees who do not comply will be asked to leave. Policies will be updated as circumstances and requirements change in our community. Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show. 

On a few special dates each year, singer-songwriter May Erlewine breaks from her Americana and folk roots to front The Motivations: a seven-piece dance party funk band that dishes up boogie jams and classic soul cuts and features vocals, guitar, keys, bass, organ, trumpet, saxophone, drums and percussion. Expect a retro-groove dance party meant to get you moving, make you feel connected, and help you celebrate the moment. We'll set aside the dance floor on either side of the stage, so you can look forward to feel-good fun and small revolutions to shake things up, just enough.
